Travis Shaw has been recalled from Triple-A San Antonio and is playing first base Friday night for the Milwaukee Brewers as they take on the visiting Chicago Cubs.

The onetime slugger was sent down in June after hitting .164 with six homers and 13 RBIs in 57 games.

Shaw had averaged 32 homers and 94 RBIs in his first two seasons in Milwaukee, after coming over from the Boston Red Sox in a trade for Tyler Thornburg.
